These deposits gradually reduce the efficiency of your equipment and reduce the flow of water through the pipes. If these deposits are allowed to build up over a long period it can eventually cause your boilers, water heaters and appliances to break down or need replacing.
The solution to this problem is a water softener installation. Water softeners are designed to remove the calcium and magnesium present in hard water which cause limescale and scum. They are intended to treat the problem at source and are usually installed where the water supply enters your premises.
A Harvey water softener is a device about the size of a computer tower. It gets plumbed in to your house, usually underneath the kitchen sink, and it takes the water as it comes into the house and runs it through a pair of softening tanks, which remove the minerals from the water that cause limescale and soap scum.
Every so often, the machine flushes the minerals from the tanks by rinsing them through with salt water, which is why it needs to be kept topped up with blocks of salt. Aside from that, you don’t need to do anything to keep it running.
